Treasury report done by Tom Reiter.

We are sitting about the same as last year at this time.

Banquet update:

Next banquet meeting will be Tuesday 1/7/14 @ 630pm at the Elks.

Need volunteers to help with banquet set up, during banquet, and the clean up.

Work on doing advertising for the banquet. Becky needs to get a time set up for Clay at Town Square Media.

Great Rockies Outdoor Show:

In the kids fishing pond there will be 5 tagged fish in each pond. These will be prize fish.

Hours are Friday 1p-8p, Saturday 10a-6p, and Sunday 10a-4p.

Thursday 1/9 @ 100 pm begin setting up booth for the outdoor show. Anyone that wants to help show up at the Metra. Mike, Greg, and Ray setting up for sure. Booth 127

Tom was approached about advertising at the Great Rockies Outdoor Sports Show. We could get more exposure but since such short notice we will consider it for next year.

Wanted to get a picture of Northern Pike for kids to color and mail back in for a prize.

-BREAK-

Talked about the Christmas party and all the fun we had. The white elephant gift exchange was fun and something different to do.

Boat stickers are now due! They are free but mandatory.

Gina took a fall on the ice and injured her elbow. We may have to have Karen come back to help with the magazine.

Because the print shop wants clothing orders to be a minimum order of 12 or more, Clay needs to get the order in. They are back logged so things can be added to order.

Hats not ordered because still looking for one with Northern Pike on them.

Just can’t find them.

Meeting Adjourned

Pike Masters Minutes February 2014

February 6, 2014

Pike Masters Minutes

Meeting called to order by Clay Buckmiller

Becky read the minutes from the January meeting. Approved

Guest Keeley Montgomery was with Steve Radue.

New members attending were Roger and Sharon Henry, Bruce Galvin, Bob Gilstrap, Willie and Tina Tipton, and Bobby Rausch. Welcome All!

March 1, 2014 – Cabela’s Outdoor Days 900 am to 400 pm

March 22, 2014 – Big Bear Sportsman Days 900 am to 400 pm

(Big Bear will take $10.00 off new members membership)

Members needed to help at each one of these events. Some members are going to be in Helena and Missoula for the outdoor shows. We will again be doing a membership drive, and we will have another rifle.

Last years membership drive brought in 94 new members and families. Our current membership is 176 members and Clayton would like to see membership up to 250 members or more. It is achievable but will take work from everyone!

Clay purchased heart shaped boxed candy for the women in attendance for Valentines Day.

Discussed the upcoming Northern/Walleye spawn at Fort Peck coming up late March to early April. Clay encourages members to try to attend, especially those with kids. It is very educational for the whole family. Next meeting will have some forms that need to be signed before doing fish spawn.

Clay is going to check into where the Northern Pike are going from the spawn?

Nick was saying that he heard snow pack on upper Missouri is about 110%.

Rock Creek has 2 feet of ice and by end of the week may be 3 feet thick. Not much snow!

May 6, 2014 – Deadpan’s Basin – FOP will be putting nets out to get fish counts on Konkani and Tiger Musky.

May 20, 21, and 22, 2014 – FWP kids fishing @ Lake Elmo. Estimating 700 kids this year. Any members that are able to help out would be greatly appreciated.

Seventeen envelopes with pictures from the kids fishing pond have been mailed in. Most envelopes had two pictures in them. Discussed prizes we were going to give to the kids. We have Steak n Shake coupons but several members said we needed to give them something physical like a fishing pole, tackle box, or t-shirts. We will get something for the kids, and I’ll call them all to have them come to Cabela’s to pick up the prize.

-BREAK-

This year is the 15th Anniversary of Montana Pike Masters. Some of the new members are actually renewals from past years. Bruce Galvin had a list of the names that attended the 1st Pike Masters meeting:

Bob Dolly, Pete Gannon, Pat Ross, Paul and Hank Meyer, Bill Sanro, Kevin Hellis, Cliff Husom, Bruce Galvin, Scott Haslet, Mike Briggs, Dick Gritten, Robert Rausch, Eric Skaggs, and someone with last name of May. 2nd meeting Conrad Sandaker, and Bill Schmidt also attended, and 3rd meeting Pete Gerhy, and Dan Gilstrap joined.

Bob Gilstrap, Dan’s father spoke to the club and asked if we would do a scholarship in Dan’s memory? Dan never went to college but did a lot of work with his hands. We have two other scholarships that are set up for medical or outdoor criteria and was thinking something more toward the setting one up for the Trades.

George Nilson suggested that we add something to books that any members we lose we do something for them. Then when something happens to one of the members we will already have something in place.

Tom suggested that we wait for a year, start saving money, and shoot to give the first scholarship away at next years banquet.

Clay also mentioned that we could plant a tree with the Billings Parks in members name.

Several suggestions for the club to think about!

Carol Henckel was at the meeting to give update on the Camp Make A Dream Tournament.

$2,720.00 was given to Camp Make A Dream.

$300.00 set aside for the fisheries

30 teams participated in last years tournament.

$1,500.00 was donated by Pike Masters to the Camp Make A Dream Tournament.

Camp Make a Dream Tournament will be held on 8/2/14 @ Canyon Ferry.

Clay was asking if we want to continue supporting this tournament or not?

George felt we should continue to support the tournament since we were the ones who began the tournament.

Henry motioned to table this for 1 month

Jim 2nd this

Unanimous vote to discuss at March Meeting.

The Laurel Pond Aerators need to have the air lines that run from windmills to pond replaced. Mike Ruggles was telling Tom this and asked if we could put up $100.00? FWP has applied for a grant and just waiting now to hear if they get it.

Banquet update:

Well it took a few years but the way the tables were set up this year worked! That was the biggest buzz was the space and more room. Microphone system on the other hand needs fixed.

Last banquet meeting will be held Tuesday 2/11, 630 pm at the Elk’s.

Tables were set up to seat 470 and about 30 empty seats Tom estimated.

The rifle cases were sold out in about 45 minutes.

We got $1,000.00 for the Thompson Center rifle, $680.00 for the 270, $690.00 for the Ruger, and $480.00 for the 17 HMR.

Five decks of cards sold for the 50/50 drawings.

We were down $340.00 on raffle ticket sales. (I didn’t get the total on raffle ticket sales…just realized it.. sorry)

We made $325.00 on Bernie’s fishing trip, $1050.00 for the hard booze, and $505.00 on the smaller booze bucket.

Grossed approximately $23,979.00

We will need to discuss some different options to change, because did better in some areas and down in other areas.

Tom went over the Treasurer’s report and says we are down about $1,000.00 this year compared to last year. For the banquet prizes this year we spent about $3,600.00, spent $1,800.00 on the fish, but we are sitting pretty good.

Meeting adjourned
